Here you are

10% i think is your MAV for this item

 

so +/- 0.8 ounces per package

PLUS or MINUS 10%

 

8 ounces - .08 = 7.92 ounces as your bottom weight allowed

Whoops  i missed a decimal place

 

if 8 ounces is your declared weight, 10% of that is 0.8 ounces

 

Subtract the 0.8 ounces to get 7.2 ounces  (sorry I'm a metric person)

Us the link below, it is a lengthy document and has tables at the end to help guide you to the appropriate Maximum Allowable Variance for a specified weight.
